One-Part, Flexible, Cold-Applied, Traffic Loop Sealant
SEALEX E-Z is a one-part, flexible, fast-drying traffic loop protector and sealant. Sidewall adhesion and flexibility characteristics are retained during cold winter temperatures. SEALEX E-Z will not flow from joints or be picked up by vehicular traffic in hot weather.
While totally encapsulating sensitive detection wiring to add greater protection, SEALEX E-Z provides superior joint sealing properties. It bonds tenaciously to both Portland cement and asphalt concrete pavements. SEALEX E-Z can even be applied into damp joints (no standing water).
- Self-leveling/No tooling required.
- Easy to use/One-component; pours directly from the container.
- Totally encapsulates wiring/Protects and waterproofs cabling.
- Can be applied to damp joints/Increased productivity.
- Fast drying/Opens to traffic immediately with proper joint design.
- Outstanding sealant characteristics/Year-round seasonal performance.
- High arc resistance/No threat of electrocution.
- Safe to use/No special protective gear.
- Gives off no dangerous vapors/No special ventilation or respirators required.
- Cleans up with water/Easy to maintain.
1 Gal. (3.79 L) Container (4/Carton)
5 Gal. (18.93 L) Pail
When stored indoors in original, unopened containers at temperatures between 40° – 90° F, optimum performance and best use is obtained within six months of date of manufacture.
Consistency: Heavy Syrup – Self-Leveling
Weight/Gal.: 8.3 Lb. (3.74 kg)
VOC Content: 0 g/L
Apply SEALEX E-Z when the air and pavement temperatures are above 45º F (7º C). Do not apply if rain is forecast or imminent within 24 hours.
Surface Preparation … The sawed loop should be clean and free of standing water, however SEALEX E-Z can adhere to damp joints.
Application Method … MIX WELL BEFORE USING. Pour sealant directly from the one-gallon unit or from any appropriate pouring container. Once applied, a follow up should be done with a soft rubber, U-shaped squeegee to form a wipe zone of approximately 3 – 4″ (76.2 -101.6 mm) wide along the crack/joint and flush with the highway or pavement surface.

SEALEX E-Z will become tack-free within two hours. To help insure that traffic will not pick up the sealant prior to full cure, the material can be recessed 1/8″ (3.2 mm) below the pavement surface. Dust with cement dust, cover with two-ply toilet paper, or spray with a de-tackifier to aid in reducing any potential for tracking.
Cleanup … Use water for cleanup before product cures. Once material has cured, use a solvent-based cleaner.
KEEP FROM FREEZING. Storage temperatures should not exceed 90º F (32º C). Do not apply if rainfall is forecast or imminent. Do not apply if air and surface temperatures are expected to fall below 45º F (7º C) within two days after application.
